CBS Sports' College Basketball Player of the Year Race

8. Joel Berry (North Carolina): Berry has taken a leadership role in UNC's program and mostly been fantastic. He's averaging 14.8 points, 4.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds for the Tar Heels, who are 8-1 and ranked sixth in the Top 25 (and one). He's dealing with an ankle injury now that will keep him out of Wednesday's game with Davidson Wildcats. (CBS Sports)

Davidson’s Jack Gibbs, one of the nation’s top guards, aiming for another shot against UNC

Jack Gibbs isn't Steph Curry -- nobody is -- but he's the closest thing Davidson (5-2) has headed into Wednesday's game at No. 7 North Carolina (8-1). One of the best point guards in the country, Gibbs would need to play a tremendous game for Davidson to have any chance at pulling off an upset in the Smith Center (9 p.m., ESPN2).

UNC's Kennedy Meeks Invested

Not only has Kennedy Meeks ramped up his rebounding efforts – he pulled down a career-high 15 rebounds in the opener against Tulane only to set a new mark six games later with 16 rebounds against Wisconsin – but he’s been much more consistent, scoring in double figures in all but one game and grabbing at least seven rebounds in every game.
